Me and my partner stayed here while backpacking through thailand, and it certainly helped give a great first impression of the islands as Koh Tao was the first island we visited. Originally for us this was a little out of our price range, however most of the hostels on Koh Tao were booked up as the result of the latest 'Full Moon Party' on Koh Phanagn, after which party goers all arrive in bulk on Koh Tao. We stayed in a studio which was 2500bht a night, and I can honestly say for the price you got a lot for your money. There is a luxurious infinity pool with views looking down over the island and Sairee Beach, which unusually made the decision between pool or beach difficult for me-especially seeing as the closest beach in the village of Mae Haad is stunning. In terms of location, its about a ten minute walk uphill from the village, which was fine for us being young, however if you want to hire bikes it is incredibly cheap to do so as the very helpful owner Julia offered us her bike for a mere 150bht a day. Julia was very helpful right from the start as she picked us up from the pier when our ferry arrived and after showing us to our studio even ordered a takeaway for my partner who was very hungry by then. We only had one issue with the aircon not being cool enough, however after informing Julia of this she immediately contacted the maintenance guys who saw to the problem asap. We noticed in general on the island that mains power/electricity is weak so you have to expect this when you visit Koh Tao. All in all we had a great few days and really didn't want to leave when the time came. Will definetly be visiting again if ever back on the island. Thank you for a wonderful few days :)
